The plant originally got a permit in 2010, just weeks before the EPA issued its first rules on greenhouse gases. In 2013 the state Supreme Court ordered KDHE officials to make changes to the permit to address other pollutants. KDHE responded by issuing what it called an "addendum" to the original permit, and argued that because it wasn't issuing a new permit to replace the one issued late in 2010, Sunflower still was not required to limit greenhouse gas emissions.

The new power station was built in 1964–1968 and it became operational in 1966. It consists of two units. The first unit is a 125MW [[steam]] unit, fueled by lignite coal. The second unit is a 63MW gas unit which includes two gas generators. It is used as a reserve unit for the Slovenian electric system. The power station is operated by [[Termoelektrarna Trbovlje]] and state-owned power utility HSE.  +{{cite news  +| url        = http://www.ibe.si/portal/page?_pageid=54,166165&_dad=portal&_schema=PORTAL  +| title      = TPP Trbovlje  +| publisher  = IBE d.d.  +| accessdate = 2013-04-02}}  +  +Global Energy Observatory, [http://globalenergyobservatory.org/geoid/41124 Trbovlje (TES) Coal Power Plant Slovenia"], Global Energy Observatory website, accessed October 2012.  +   +The Trbovlje Chimney (Trboveljski dimnik) of the power station, built in 1976, is the tallest flue-gas stack in Europe. The 360-metre (1,180 ft) high flue-gas stack required 11,866 cubic metres (419,000 cu ft) of concrete and 1,079 tons of reinforcing steel.
